Hello respected members. i would like to ask the seniors and expert members about the difference between blue finishing and black oxide finishing otherwise known as parkerizing. what is the procedure for carrying out each of the finishing technique. Which one is better with regards to longevity, durability, resistance to rust and field abuse. all senior members including LAGS, KBW, HMR, Ghazi sir please put light on the topic.

@ Mohammad.
The Bluing is a Chemical process that forms a smooth Oxcide coating in the metal.
The parkerizing is a Phosphate acid Etching of the metal that produces a rougher or Dull discoloration of the metal.
The Parkerizing is more resistant to wear, and can be done Faster in a factory, and that is why it was the prefered method for millitary guns for many years.
Parkerizing is also the preperation you do for better rust protection when you Paint a guns surface like DuraCoat or other Spray on applications.

Yes, it is a better option if you want a rugged long lasting finish which is more rust resistant and you do not care about beauty and elegance much (bluing looks far more beautiful than parkerizing in my view)

@ KBW
Parkerize your gun , then you can DuraCoat it to any color your heart desires, Even Shinny Black.
